Telarus Inc. announced that it has entered into an agreement to market and sell AboveNet‘s high-bandwidth commercial IP, WDM, Ethernet, VPN, MAN/WAN and other data services, on AboveNet’s privately owned fiber-optic network which serves 15 top U.S. metro markets and London. The agreement opens the way for Telarus agents to focus on enterprise clients who require 100mbps to 40gbps high-bandwidth connectivity.
“We are very excited to add AboveNet to our carrier portfolio,” said Adam Edwards, president of Telarus. “AboveNet is an industry leader in metro Ethernet services and they will allow us to sell into an increased number of larger opportunities. Their prices, service, network and focus on the agent channel are all excellent, and we can’t wait to get started.”
To prepare for the partnership announcement, AboveNet and Telarus worked together to load all of AboveNet’s products, pricing, and fiber footprint into GeoQuote, Telarus’ patented real-time pricing tool that its agents use for instant research.
“We are confident that Telarus agents will find that our products will be a great fit for their larger customers,” added Brian Sheehan, Channel Director for AboveNet. “Our two cultures are focused on adding value to the agent experience through investment, dedicated personnel and software. We expect Telarus and its agents will quickly become big fans of AboveNet.”
